Google Home App & Nest App for Nest Cams

TBCuthbert

I am new to using Google Home but not new to  Nest Cams. I have had Nest Cams since the Dropcam days. 

I recently received an email that support for my original Dropcam is being dropped soon and that nicely Google provided me with a Nest Indoor Cam as a replacement.

I just started using it & Google Home yesterday.
As the Google Home app has been used for the newer Nest cams, I had hoped and expected to see all of the Nest App Cam capabilities in Google Home by now. It has been a few years.. 

As per others comments that does not appear to be the case ... yet??? unless I am missing something??

🤔How do we find out from Google what their roadmap is for the cam capability for Google Home. The Nest App for Cams has been invaluable for me the past several years.

Does Google Home have a roadmap for the Nest Cams? that includes some or all of these valued capabilities?

Here are some of my specifics. (screenshots below)
1. full screen view of several Nest Cams for security monitoring
2. seamless scrolling between Live mode and history mode showing zoens & event highlights
3. sizing of the view (Enhance mode) to focus the Nest cam on area of interet
4. browser and app interface to quickly get targetted clips of incidents.

There isn't a roadmap per se, but this topic provides some updates:

Hi there,

 

Thanks for posting in the Google Nest Community forum. I just want to check if you managed to see the response above. Please let us know if you still have questions or concerns, as we'll be willing to assist you further. 

 

I appreciate the input, @David_K.

 

Best,

Jenelyn

Thanks for follow-up.  
I recently installed indoor cam replacement that you sent me for my dropcam.  PLEASE do not drop support for the Dropcam until you have ported all of the Nestcam iphone app capabilities over to the Google Home app.
I currently can see al of my cams in multicam fullscreen view on the iphone app and iPad app.  When you drop DROPCAM, I will have to kludge a solution of hopping back & forth between Nestcam app & Google Home app on my iPhone and iPad. This will be a hokey kludge solution if the Google Home app is not updated with the Nestcam iPhone/iPad app ported code.  You have had several years to do this and you are a multi-$billion company.

Hoping for this to be resolved soon. As you can see, I have I have been a supportive customer since the Dropcam days.
